    Hi

    I'm trying to find out if Netflix would work outside the US so i can watch netflix on my ipad in Ont CDN.

    I have a us address but only spend 6 months in the us even if we go that year.

    I would hate to buy 12 $9.99 month cards and netflix won't even let me stream in CDN.

    Thanks

    BTW,I know Netflix is coming to CDN but we never get what the us gets

    US Netflix doesn't work in Europe

    Just tried it on a trip to Europe where it didn't work.
    Netflix displayed a message that basically went like this: "content can not be displayed to to legal restrictions/territories"

    Don't know about Canada, as the movie studios often see USA including Canada as part of the domestic market.

    Since you can get a Netflix account due to your US address you should be able to use a proxy to stream it to Canada.

    I don't think it will work. I would just wait until September, Netflix is suppose to come to PS3 streaming, so its a possibility it may come to the iPhone/iPad.

    It will. Those in the military in other countries have been doing this for a while even though the bases IP addresses aren't US. A solution known to work is Hot Spot Shield

    Have to add to my post that I was trying out Netflix on a wireless network not Wifi, so I was clear to see that I wasn't logging in from the US.

    It works if you use a VPN service. I'm using 12vpn.com from my place in Sweden...

    What he said. And a high recommendation for 12vpn.com. Works flawlessly and great price.
